Baggies wait on Brunt

18 March 2011 04:00
West Brom are sweating on the fitness of midfielder Chris Brunt ahead of their Barclays Premier League clash with Arsenal at the Hawthorns. Brunt is suffering from a fever, but boss Roy Hodgson is hopeful he will recover in time to take on the Gunners, whom the Baggies beat 3-2 at the Emirates earlier in the campaign. Youssouf Mulumbu is fit to play after shaking off a muscle problem. Graham Dorrans is definitely out with an ankle injury, while on-loan striker Carlos Vela is not eligible to face his parent club.
